Science Collaboration(s): 
Strong Lensing (SLSC)

In general I am interested in strong lensing in all of its scales. However, most of my interest is towards strongly lensed quasars: measuring H0, massive (lens) galaxies structure and evolution, and background AGN characterization through microlensing. I am particularly interested in using microlensing affected lensed quasar light curves to study the structure of background accretion disks.

I have been involved in the SLSC since early 2014. I have been a co-author and editor of the "COSEP" paper in 2017, dealing with analysis of LSST observing strategy for both quasar microlensing and H0 measurements though time-delays. I was a member of the science advisory committee between 2016-2019 and have been co-chair of the SLSC since 2019. As chair of the SLSC, beyond normal chairing duties, I have also led the SLSC cadence task force among others.
